LXC-MONITOR(1)                                                LXC-MONITOR(1)

NAME         top

       lxc-monitor - monitor the container state

SYNOPSIS         top

       lxc-monitor [ -n name ]  [ -Q name ]

DESCRIPTION         top

       lxc-monitor monitors the state of containers. The name argument may
       be used to specify which containers to monitor. It is a regular
       expression, conforming with posix2, so it is possible to monitor all
       the containers, several of them or just one. If not specified, name
       will default to '.*' which will monitor all containers in lxcpath.

       The -P, --lxcpath=PATH option may be specified multiple times to
       monitor more than one container path. Note however that containers
       with the same name in multiple paths will be indistinguishable in the

OPTIONS         top

       -Q, --quit
              Ask the lxc-monitord daemon on each given lxcpath to quit.
              After receiving this command, lxc-monitord will exit
              immediately as soon as it has no clients instead of waiting
              the normal 30 seconds for new clients. This is useful if you
              need to unmount the filesystem lxcpath is on.

COMMON OPTIONS         top

       These options are common to most of lxc commands.

       -?, -h, --help
              Print a longer usage message than normal.

              Give the usage message

       -q, --quiet
              mute on

       -P, --lxcpath=PATH
              Use an alternate container path. The default is

       -o, --logfile=FILE
              Output to an alternate log FILE. The default is no log.

       -l, --logpriority=LEVEL
              Set log priority to LEVEL. The default log priority is ERROR.
              Possible values are : FATAL, CRIT, WARN, ERROR, NOTICE, INFO,

              Note that this option is setting the priority of the events
              log in the alternate log file. It do not have effect on the
              ERROR events log on stderr.

       -n, --name=NAME
              Use container identifier NAME.  The container identifier
              format is an alphanumeric string.

              Specify the configuration file to configure the virtualization
              and isolation functionalities for the container.

              This configuration file if present will be used even if there
              is already a configuration file present in the previously
              created container (via lxc-create).

              Show the version number.

EXAMPLES         top

       lxc-monitor -n foo
              will monitor the different states for container foo.

       lxc-monitor -n 'foo|bar'
              will monitor the different states for container foo and bar.

       lxc-monitor -n '[fb].*'
              will monitor the different states for container with the name
              beginning with letter 'f' or 'b'.

       lxc-monitor -n '.*'
              will monitor the different states for all containers.

DIAGNOSTIC         top
